Hell for Children to be the Heaven for the Royal Couple for Honeymoon

Browzing through I read this article about the formal invitation extended to the new Royal Couple to be – Prince William and his future wife Kate Middleton.

I just wondered, whether the Royal couple will have knowledge that if they accept this invitation, they will be spending their honeymoon with a backdrop of thousands of helpless infants and young children and “adult” children (as Maldivian culture deems it), who have not even an ounce of justice in their lifetime. That there is no hope for these children; who have been physically, psychologically, sexually abused and neglected by the majority – including the State.

The Royal Couple will be supporting and promoting a country with the likes of Zimbabwe, in terms of the atrocities that go unchecked on the streets of the capital and the rest of the islands. The State gets away with a simple set of excuses which include (i) no qualified personnel (ii) no money (iii) no Laws (iv) and the Powers are now autonomous.

We wish the Royal Couple will put the Lost Children of Maldives in a slot in their agenda so that at least one of the excuses given to make this country Hell for it’s Children is addressed by Royal Couple. Well aware that the Paradise Haven for the princesses is in fact garnished with a backrop of Hell for Children.

Police have arrested eight paedophiles in two separate incidents involving the sexual abuse of two girls, aged three and ten.

Addressing press today, Inspector Mirufath Faiz, head of the police family and child protection unit, said the ten-year-old girl from Haa Dhaalu atoll Naivaadhoo had been repeatedly sexually abused by her father, uncle and four family friends since the age of five.

The girl’s mother who is divorced from her father reported the case on 16 April after she discovered her daughter had been abused; the girl had been living with her father and step-mother.

“According to her medical records, doctors say the girl is neither physically nor mentally fit,” said Mirufath.

The ages of the six men who abused the girl ranged from 19 to 73, she said, adding the police investigation revealed the girl had on one occasion been simultaneously sexually abused by her 45-year-old father and 52-year-old uncle.

Although the names of the girl’s father and uncle cannot be named to protect her identity, the other suspects are Abdulla Ali, 73, from Haa Dhaalu atoll Naivaadhoo; Abdulla Shareef, 36, from Thaa atoll Thimarafushi; Ahmed Muhuthaaru, 19, from Haa Dhaalu atoll Naivaadhoo; and Ismail Ahmed, 52, from M. Baadhiya in Male’.

Mirufath said the case of the three-year-old girl from Vilimale’ island was filed on 3 May and two expatriates, Juweil, 20, and Ramzan Ali, 26, were being held in police custody in connection with the crime.

She said the two men did not have valid work permits and had been hired by the girl’s family on a temporary basis to carry out household chores.

“I appeal not to expose your children,” said Mirufath.
